DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:20 P.M.) – Militants of Maghaweir Al-Thawra (Revolutionary guards), an islamist group supported by the U.S., have set up a new camp in Al-Zagiph area in southeastern Syria.

The area is located 70 kilometres northeast of Al-Tanf border crossing to Iraq and approximately 130 kilometres south of Al-Bukamal city in Deir Ezzor province controlled by the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS).

According to the statement issued by the group, the new garrison is intended to intensify struggle against IS.

However, it looks obvious that imposing control over Syrian-Iraqi border bears higher priority for the U.S. and their islamist allies, than just fighting against IS.

Remarkably, establishment of the new camp in southeastern Syria coincided with the recent announcement made by a representative of another US-backed entity, Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), in which he claimed that SDF “will not allow Shia paramilitary groups to enter Syria from Iraq”.

Therefore, the true long-term goal of U.S. military operations in southeastern Syria may well be linking up with SDF units in northeastern part of the country and hence effectively sealing the entire Syrian-Iraqi border to isolate Syrian government from Iraq.

SDF “will not allow Shia paramilitary groups to enter Syria from Iraq”.

Ok, so the Shia paramilitary groups will not allow the “rebells” to get ammo from KSA.
So theses fucking rebells will have a lon salient.

100 encampments in southeastern Syria will not stop Iranian-back militants to reach Iraqi border 😉 .

How dare these US mercenary puppets and invaders threaten the sole legitimate elected Syrian Government forces and ther allies? The Iraqi Sunnis and Shia who are allied to the Syrian government are inhabitants of the same Arab lands and neighbours. The only forces which are out of place there are the invading US and so called coalition troops which cme from thousands of miles away and the SDF and Kurds themselves who belong to Turkey’s Eastern Anatolia not Syria. This statement is a blatant violation of Syria’s sovereignty and a declaration of war against the Syrian state and Syria should… Read more »
